Happy Sunday!! Let’s start with the winners!
Congratulations to Bevieann for winning Vicky Dreilings’s, book What a Devilish Duke Desires!
And to Louisa Cornell for winning a copy of Erin Satie’s book, Lover’s Knot!
Now I have a surprise for you!! I received a sneak peek of the cover art for, Three Weeks to Wed, the first book in my next series. It will be available in mass paperback in April 2016. This has to be the best cover yet!!
No blurb yet, but here is a short excerpt.
Grace swallowed. Maybe now he’d understand. “My lord . . .” His mouth re-captured hers. Her tongue tangled with his, savoring his taste and the soft caresses. Once again his wicked hands lit fires under her skin.
He lifted his head and her lips followed. “Will you do me the honor of being my wife?”
Grace fought herself to let go of him and back up, yet he refused to release her hands. “My lord, thank you for your very kind offer, but I find I cannot accept.”
His expression rapidly changed from a humorous to confused and then severe. “Why?”
She closed her eyes and fought to steady her voice. “All those children, they are my brothers and sisters.”
Frowning, he shook his head as if trying to make sense of what she’d said. “Very well. Many families have a number of children. What does that have to do with anything? I have sisters myself. I’ve been hoping you liked children.
Tears stung her eyes as Grace bit her lip. This was the hardest thing she’d ever had to do, but do it she must. Her throat tightened, threatening to choke her. “I am—I am their guardian. I will never give up that position.”
Wrenching her hands from his, she fled the room, closing the door with a snap behind her.
Matt stared down at his empty hands and then at the closed door. He found a chair and sat. Numbness washed over him. How many children were there? He should have counted, but it never occurred to him that she . . . He put his elbows on his knees and dropped his head into his hands.
Guardian? She’s their guardian? How could that be?
He’d lost track of how long he sat there trying to think when the door opened.
The youngest girl walked in, a mulish cast was about her mouth, and her determined chin trembled a bit. “You made Grace cry.”
That was fair. He felt like crying as well. “I didn’t mean to. I meant to make her happy.”
The child creased her brow and nodded wisely. “Made a mull of it, did you?”
Now to the boat. We should finally have our weather enclosure next week. That will mean that I don’t have to grab the computer and run inside every time it rains. Last Monday, we moved to Christmas cove.
We’ll be here until the 9th then we’ll head down island for a couple of weeks. It’s a fun anchorage. Most boats are here for a couple of days, then leave. We have also seen a number of charter boats. There is even a pizza boat.
Yesterday, Hubby reminded me to take pictures of the fish. Unfortunately, they are not as clear as I would have liked.
We are still waiting for our Garmin wind part. The post office appears to have misplaced it.
What’s been happening with you this week. Who has been snowed on?
